Give a dog a home and a reason to be thankful this Thanksgiving!

by admin • Posted in: Foster, Pets Needing Homes

Every dog lover knows that the best part of cooking that juicy Thanksgiving turkey (or Tofurkey, as the case may be), are those soulful, sincere doggie eyes staring up at you filled with hope. They’re just waiting for you to drop something. They know you’ll do it. You’ll be so distracted by their sweet, drooling face that an errant morsel will fall to the floor and, ever helpful creatures, they’ll swoop in to pick it up for you.

That unwavering hope is what the following dogs are holding on to. These are some exceedingly wonderful pups who’ve done a longer than average stint with APA!. We’re not sure why, but we’d like to introduce you to them anew. In the spirit of love and giving, we hope you’ll give one of these dogs a home for Thanksgiving and maybe even the opportunity to “help” in the kitchen …
